How to activate Dropbox Dark Mode in 3 easy steps?

Dropbox is a cloud service for online file storage. It allows the user to synchronize files with different computers and mobile devices and share them with third parties at the same time. That with the original release date on 11 September 11, 2008. The website style is simplistic and lacks Dark Mode. However, there is a solution to get the DropBox Dark Mode website. That is thanks to the Turn Off the Lights browser extension, which provides you the option to convert all websites in your personal dark theme.
